The National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) would like to congratulate Charmaine Mapimbiro (aka Sha-Sha) on winning the Viewer’s Choice: Best New International Act Award at the 20th BET Awards held in Los Angeles at the weekend.

“As NACZ this success did not come as a surprise to the council as we are aware of the amount of hard work and dedication that she has put in her artistic works and we feel that this award is in recognition of her talent and amazing vocal ability.

“Any good work will speak for itself, the world has made a determination and we acknowledge the endorsement.

“Sha Sha’s sincerity and passionate desire to excel have borne such fruitful results as she kept her dedication firm and did not budge or give up at any time despite various challenges she faced in her artistic journey which today have earned her deserved global recognition,” NACZ director Nicholas Moyo has said.

He said the award was also an endorsement on the growth and development of the arts sector in Zimbabwe and Africa at large coming so soon after the Zimbabwean Mbira was recently celebrated by global technology firm Google.

“Such global recognition of Zimbabwe arts and Culture is testimony that the sector has the potential to contribute significantly to the development of the country.

“We truly believe that this award is just the beginning of many such successes in Sha Sha’s career and we wish her all the very best for her future endeavours. We also call upon other creatives in various sector’s to take encouragement from this success to continue with their creative work despite the various lockdown conditions that have had to be imposed by the government to limit the spread of the COVID19 disease.”
